WWDC attendent gets mugged. Apple gives him new iPad. Steve wishes him safe travels home.

Apple invited a developer from TenCent, China's most popular instant messaging client, to WWDC 2010. During his stay in San Francisco, the developer got mugged for his iPad. He escaped with a few injuries and his completely smashed iPad. Afterwards, he went to an Apple Store and told his story....

Looking back: The 2010 WWDC keynote: iPhone 4, iOS 4, iBooks and more!

Continuing the look back at previous WWDC keynotes as we eagerly await the 2013 conference getting underway, today it's on to 2010. Earlier in the year Apple had launched the iPad, and already shown off version 4.0 of the iPhone OS, but at WWDC iOS was officially termed for the first time. We also got another new iPhone and the launch of iBooks for the iPhone.

    Glasshouse Apps talks the Early Edition RSS for iPad - TiPb at WWDC 2010

    NAVIGON shows off iOS 4 multitasking for iPhone turn-by-turn navigation

    A double dose of NAVIGON today as they've put out a video showing off MobileNavigator on iOS 4 making use of background location. Fast app switching, saved state, and the Location API for taking a call while still receiving navigation directions are all on display.

    We've got an exclusive video interview with MobileNavigator for iPhone product manager Bern Hahn taken during WWDC 2010 for your viewing pleasure. He tells TiPb what he thinks of Apple's iOS 4 multitasking, the iPad, and of course, iPhone 4.

    Video action after the break.

    Terrific idea. If you're a developer who couldn't attend, you'd be crazy not to jump on this.

    WWDC attendent gets mugged. Apple gives him new iPad. Steve wishes him safe travels home.

    Apple invited a developer from TenCent, China's most popular instant messaging client, to WWDC 2010. During his stay in San Francisco, the developer got mugged for his iPad. He escaped with a few injuries and his completely smashed iPad. Afterwards, he went to an Apple Store and told his story. The Apple Genius was totally awesome and hooked up the developer with a brand new iPad. News of the incident eventually reached Steve Jobs and he sent the developer a very quick Steve-like email:

    Safe travels home.
    Steve

    This story leaves me speechless. It's wonderful that Apple replaced that developer's iPad. It's also great the Steve sent him an email, but should he have at least said more than 3 words?

    More images after the break.

    iPhone 4 preview

    Everything you need to know about Apple's new iPhone 4

    iPhone 4 is the most significant hardware revision to Apple's widescreen iPod, breakthrough internet communicator, and phone since the original iPhone 2G was released in 2007. But how significant is it? Apple CEO Steve Jobs said there were over 100 new features and singled out 8 for special attention. We'll take the most interesting of both and see just how important they are, after the break.

    (For more on the software, see our massive iOS 4 feature walkthrough).

    Good night WWDC 2010, see you next year

    In with the roar of iPhone 4, out with the whisper of tuckered developers jetting home, WWDC 2010 draws to a close. What with the aforementioned new hardware, the Gold Master seed of the newly renamed iOS 4, Safari 5, Xcode 4, and more secret sessions than any non-Vulcan brain could comfortably take in, there's no doubt we'll be seeing even more amazing iPhone and iPad apps and soon.

    We have a bunch more video interviews still to edit and post, including such luminaries as 1Password, Bjango, Navigon, and Glasshouse.

    TiPb at WWDC 2010 – day two round up

    WWDC 2010 day two saw sessions jump into high gear as developers learned more about Game Center (which is comforting considering it was strangely MIA from the Keynote) and what's going on with that monster 960x640 retina display on the new iPhone 4. Apple also handed out some polished aluminum cubes by way of app awards, and I got to sit down with some terrific app developers. (And yes, we're giving away an iPhone 4).

    Apple Design Award winning iPhone and iPad apps from WWDC 2010

    Twitterrific gets simpler, better for iPad - TiPb at WWDC

    Twitterrific is the grandaddy of iOS Twitter clients -- it existed on the iPhone before there was an SDK and was in the App Store on launch day, and again for iPad launch. Twitterrific has evolved from a reader-centric experience to a feature-full client and back to a highly focused app.

    Craig Hockenberry, a principle at Iconfactory, the driving force behind Twitterrific, spoke to me at WWDC 2010 about getting Twitterrific ready for the iPad and how that process re-informed what will be going into (and perhaps coming out of) Twitterrific 3.0 for iPhone.

    And no, Tweetie becoming the free Twitter for iPhone isn't slowing them down. (You can read more on that from Craig and Iconfactory collaborators David Lanham and Ged Maheux)

    Hockenberry has also taken a turn as author, with his iPhone App Development: The Missing Manual now available from O'Reilly. It takes you through the process, from SDK signup to Xcode and Objective-C, to deploying an app. It's a treasure-trove of experience and insight for developers -- aspiring and veteran alike.

    Videos after the break. (Huge apologies to everyone, especially Craig, for the annoying wind noise -- I greatly underestimated it during filming)

    Line2 brings iPhone, iPad calls into 21st century - TiPb at WWDC 2010

    Peter Sisson, founder and CEO of Toktumi talks Line2, their premium, business-optimized calling solution for the iPhone and iPad (with optimized iPad UI coming soon). While many forms of communications have leapt forward in the digital age, our telcos have been content to keep telephony in the relative dark ages. Line2 is one of several services hoping to pull them kicking and screaming forward, with both cell and VoIP based solutions.

    Currently you can conference call over VoIP -- which is really nice on an iPad -- with full call waiting and real SMS functionality. With iOS 4 VoIP will work in the background meaning apps like Line2 could just be first-class telephone solutions (and strangely carriers don't seem to be as afraid of this as they used to be).

    Line2 competes with free-as-in-Google voice by offering a more user-centric app, with lots of features and a focus on customer care. They're US/Canada only at the moment but will be expanding into the top 7 international iPhone markets soon and especially for business users, they think their offer will be compelling. (Enough that Peter suggests a MiFi rather than device data plan might just be the way to go forward...)

    Check out the video interview after the break!

    TiPb at WWDC 2010 - day one round up

    WWDC 2010 certainly starting with a bang -- or boom in Apple parlance -- with almost more iPhone 4, iOS 4, and related news than we could keep up with. Almost. Here's a quick round up of what happened today, including Steve Jobs' triumphant return to the keynote stage.

    We'll be here Tuesday and Wednesday as well, so if you're a developer email us at news(at)tipb(dot)com and drop on by, say hi, and amaze us with your apps. We're trying to fit in as many as possible.

    WWDC 2010 - What We Didn't Get

    Now that the WWDC 2010 keynote's over and the dust settles, we know what we're going to get in the coming weeks. iPhone 4 with a brand new look and tons new features, iOS 4, iMovie for iPhone, new developer APIs, iAd, and then some. Apple definitely changed the game today.  But what about the things we wanted but didn't get?

    We're all extremely excited to get our hands on the new hardware and OS but for many users, iOS 4 still leaves certain things to be desired. Keep on reading to see what we would have liked to see.

    iPhone OS 4 is now iOS 4, coming June 21

    As part of the iPhone 4 introduction today at WWDC 2010, Apple's Steve Jobs announced a name change for the operating system that powers an increasing number of their mobile devices -- goodbye iPhone OS, hello iOS. And it's coming June 21.

    Base features are what we saw at the sneak peak event -- and have detailed in way too much detail already in our walkthrough -- except for the FaceTime (i.e. video chat/calling) feature.

    GDGT says cisco owns that trademark, much like they owned iPhone in 2007. It looks a bit weird to me still, and I'm fairly sure the iMac isn't running it, so it will take some getting used to. For Apple to use iPhone 4 for the phone name, however, they needed something more distinct for the OS.

    Apple announces iMovie for iPhone

    As part of the iPhone 4 introduction during WWDC 2010, Steve Jobs announced iMovie for iPhone, with one-click sharing. This is basically iMovie from the iLife suite for Mac brought to the iPhone. Up to 720p editing and most of the functionality you'd expect, including transitions and Ken Burns effects.
